Custom Menus

Work with a member of our mixology team to plan 3-5 cocktails for your celebration. Once the cocktails are selected, we will make them look pretty with a printed menu to display on the bar. We will put together a list of ingredients needed for this custom menu and you can decide whether you would like to shop on your own, or if you would like us take care of everything.
